Bolton Beer & Cider Week

Promoted by Bolton CAMRA

BOLTON BEER AND CIDER WEEK 2nd – 11th JULY 2021

It’s been a choppy 6 months and we all deserve those liquid breaks. Restrictions are set to 19th July at least, unless we turn every event space into a wedding venue, with marriage volunteers needed.

Do please check with organisers that events will proceed though.

A smaller than expected #BBCW21, but with quality experiences. We will build on the week for future bumper ones.

The schedule for this years Bolton Beer & Cider Week has now been revealed.

A copy of the brochure can be downloaded here.
